What I am not looking forward to: Feeling big and uncomfortable. Hopefully that's still a ways away.
Week in review:
Cozy is such a nice boy that he shares his bed with his dad. Much like
I came home from work one day and I always ask him where a specific toy is. In this case, I asked, "Cozy?! Where's your bone? Go get your bone!" and I turned around to do something else and then looked back at him and was so confused as to why he was just sitting there looking at me.
And then he looked up towards the mantle. It was then that I realized Ehren had put his bone on the mantle so he wouldn't chew on it all day or choke on a piece while we were gone. He's thinking, "Hey, prego brain! I would get my bone but I can't reach it. I'll just wait for you to notice." He is too smart sometimes.
I'm growing a human yet
My Christmas list this year so far consists of gift cards to Nebraska Furniture Mart or Home Depot so we can get a deep freeze. I'm a diva... I know. (Last year I wanted gift cards to buy a new toilet). What can I say? I like big white things that hold shit. Anyway, I would like to prepare meals for the crockpot and then freeze them. Ideally, I would like to make a whole bunch while I'm still pregnant so whenever we have this baby, there's less pressure for cooking meals at home. I get cranky if we don't have meals planned out or if we are scrambling to think of something to eat. Especially if I'm hungry and tired in the first place... which I hear I will be with a newborn. So I tried making all the meals for the week on Sunday and then put them in big ziplock bags.
We made butternut squash chowder with kale (it was perfect for fall!)
Cauliflower curry. It smelled like a fart when it was cooking but it was very good!
And spicy thai chicken stew. This lasted us three nights and I only used 1/3 of the chicken it called for!
The kitchen was a disaster with a capital D.
But when I realized it was Sunday and I didn't have to cook again until Monday, I was a happy girl.
I also made a new chalkboard drawing for fall and added some decorations I put together from Michael's and TJMaxx.
Oh, and our maple tree decided to be the only tree in the neighborhood to change colors. It was glowing and this picture doesn't do it justice.
Fall is here and dinner is made for the entire week! Success. On to 17 weeks.
